Friend has a z4m. Cool car and he paid nothing for it when times were tough. I would pick the Cayman S over it any day of the week.

I bought it as a future parts car for my 914 gt project( hence my bias towards the cayman), I've been enjoying as is for now.

The kind of people who typically like the looks drive trans ams and vw kit cars.
I could only imagine what kind of beast you could make from applying those parts to a 914!!!

My friend just bought an '09 Corvette. Drove it once and I want one. They seem to be hit or miss for people. Worth a try, it was comfy and easy to drive. Easy to get in trouble too.
Yeah, I know but as a 40 yr old female I gotta have something to look good in!!
After some research on prices I will look for a cayman S as prices dont seem too bad(although why anyone would get a car like that with an automatic is beyond me, damn old people). The corvette is intriguing as prices on C6 Z06s have come down enough that it might be a reasonable option although my wife would hate it. Still hard to argue with 505hp even if the seats suck.

But what are your opinions on gold chains, mullets and wife beaters?

Definitely check out the C6. Go for a test drive's and just choose which one you really want. Personally, if I had the option, I'd be opting for the C6 as its my favorite corvette to date. Aftermarket options are plenty and they can really get up there in their HP numbers.

The Cayman S would most likely be the porsche I would buy if I were looking for one. I would stay away from the Z4M imo.

Yeah, his has 436hp, and I'm supposed to have around 180 in my miata currently. His felt like 600 to me. I've never had a tingling sensation in my groin like that before.

Gold chains and wife beaters are cool. I don't have enough hair to grow a mullet any longer.
